YOD has been horrible for us this season ...atleast we still have the T20 WC to look forward to and retrieve the season somewhat before trying to make a big push upward in the next one.

Thanks guys. We got 5 lottery pitches and won 3 tosses which helped win on stickies and flat. Fatigue a killer but now it's 2 do or die games. We will play our best team without a fatigue worry. Topping the group means we play NZ and not aus but all 4 teams won 4 games so it doesn't matter. We will give it our best shot to win the wc

We fought well ik the last 10 to lose by only 5 but lost too much ground in 1st 10 chasing 160

Hard luck guys.
Those 2 drops on Nicholls were probably the difference in the end

Yes but I still thought 160 was chaseable on green sunny. It was just weird batting in 1st 10, 48/2 in 10 was just poor, let us with too much to do in last 10.

1st tour of new season. 2 ODI tours & we pretty much need to win most of our 10 games to qualify for WC !!! Ranked last due to some disastrous SOD tours last season.

We have slow, crumbling, dry pitches this time - quite happy with pitch choice, given our spin strengths.

We are considering 9 batters & 9 bowlers, since we need to take 2 WK & one of them is will be a weaker bat, taking 8 batters & 10 bowlers might make us struggling with batting fatigue.

The 9 bowlers choice is between 4 seamers & 5 spinners or 5 seamers & 4 spinners

And among seamers - we are considering 1 F, 1 FM, 2 Ms (1 M is a AR) & if we pick a 5th seamer, might be a FM or M. We have couple of M & FM NBB to pick from, who are weaker but NBB can help.

Any thoughts from community is welcome

4 of 4 wins to promote to D2 but long way to go for wc qualification as we are currently last ranked and 2 points. We pretty much need to win today and all 5 D2 games too but definitely good step forward.

Well done to kic and voyeur for promotion here

Lost final game and 2 valuable points but overall still very good tour and promotion to D2. Need to win 5 of 5 and maybe other results to go our way for wc qualification
